Signs/Concerns

Are you facing difficult decisions with your parents? You are not alone. Many families have similar questions and concerns, including:

  1. My parents want to stay at home. What can I do to make sure they have the help they need?
  2. Are my parents safe at home alone? Is there anything I can do to make them safer?
  3. Is it time to move my parents? Where do I move them?
  4. What do I do if my mom/dad falls? I know they are unsteady. What can I do to help make sure they don’t fall?
  5. Should my parent be driving? How do I know when to take away the car keys?
  6. I worry about my mom in the bathroom. What can I do?
  7. I want to help my mom but she keeps telling me she doesn’t want to be a burden and she can do it herself.
  8. Where do I find the best care for my mom?
  9. What does she really need?
  10. How can I help my dad to find some enjoyment even during this time of declining health?
  11. What can be done to help prevent an accident at home?
  12. What is our plan for our parent(s) as they are aging and for end of life stages?

Don’t wait until the crisis happens—start planning today. Make the accommodations and changes needed before a major fall, injury, or accident due to illness.
